The People We've Become (Origainal Song)

The People We've Become

What is it that you want to change?
What determines what is strange?
What morality will you exchange
to be the people we've become?

Verse 1

Give your life to someone else
in exchange for paper wealth
to buy the stuff your TV sells
that keeps you in your civilized cell

Verse 2

Produce more unnecessary stuff each day
staying in line with the civilized way
exploiting tomorrow to consume today
with no sorrow, with no dismay

The Problem With Old People

The Problem With Old People
When a human is a child, he takes in all the knowledge he can without having to worry about that knowledge challenging his preconceived ideologies and notions of how things are supposed to be. Children can learn more purely because they don't have as many ideas that have been set in stone that can keep them from accepting new knowledge.

Learning requires one to allow the challenging, and possible change, of ideas that were previously held in high esteem. In order to learn something, one must be willing to risk the changing of ideas that were held as truth. When an adult reaches a certain age, or mindset, he is less willing to challenge ideologies that he has held as foundations of his reality. There is a certain element of comfortablity that one does not wish to relinquish for knowledge that is contrary to his long-held beliefs.

This is the problem with old people (old, not meaning physically, but mentally). One can be old in his mind at a young age. When one stops learning because it is uncomfortable to change what has been held as the truth for so long, one has become old in his mind. One may hold a belief system that he was taught as a child and never challenge it because he does not see any reason for it to be challenged. It has worked for so long, and been held in such high esteem, that his identity would be lost if he challenged his preconceived ideologies.

If there is going to be any change in the minds of the people for the betterment of humanity, the people themselves must realize that one must be open to challenging his beliefs in order to learn anything. One cannot truly learn if he is not allowing himself to question the things that he holds as truths.

One must question everything. Question reality. The reality that each human holds is the reality of that individual human. No other human shares that reality. We seem to identify ourselves with groups and ideologies, but our realities differ form the others in the group. Each human has come to the conclusion of his reality through the things that he has learned in his life. And, every human has walked a different path. So, we may have shared visions, but we still hold our own individual reality.

The problems that we face in our world, and our worldview, are not going to be solved by those whose minds are closed to challenging the paradigms that have been instituted in our consciousness. The change that needs to take place is going to happen because the people reject the paradigms that have been holding us in the current form of slavery, which is a mental slavery. Our minds have been controlled by the worldview that we have been taught by our parents, our culture, our TV's, and anything that implies the idea of conformity over thinking for ourselves.

The only savior upon whom we can rely is our self.

Who I Am, Why I Am Here, and How I Think I Got Here...

Who I Am, Why I Am Here, and How I Think I Got Here...

My name is Chris. I'm a 26 year old American male. I went to public school, mostly. I did attend a private school for a little over a couple years. I wasn't really social at first, but I became very well acquainted with mostly every individual in my school, and later, in my workplace, and community.

I tend to get along with just about everyone, and can make friends with just about all of these people, too. I like to know people. I like to know what's around me.

As I move through life, I am beginning to notice that my whole life I have been trying to be in a state of cyclicality with what goes on around me. But, recently in my life, about the last two years, I have began to see something I never could have imagined. I didn't necessarily go looking for this knowledge, it seems as though it came looking for me.

I hit a very rough emotional state in my life about the age of twenty-two. In hindsight, I can see that I was subconsciously aware of the destructiveness and the inexistence of cyclicality in the life that I was living, the lives of everyone else, and the society in which I am living. I was living the way that I was told that I was supposed to live. My parents played the role that they were taught to play. And, I was playing the role that they, and our culture, were teaching me to play.

It's obvious from what I have seen that all life in our world exists in a cyclical manor. We can see it in the world around us, whether or not we try to see it, so long as we don't look at the people in the culture in which we live. But, once you see it, you can't ignore that it exists all around you. And you feel like you have to do something about this very blatant problem that exists in our culture.

During the acquisition of this knowledge, I was also beginning to understand myself and what it is to be human. Nobody really teaches you how to be a human. It's something that everybody seems to expect you to just know. Being human is to be alive, understanding that you can only control yourself. Everything that goes on in your mind is yours. Nobody can make you do anything, unless you choose to allow them to control your emotions, or your mind, or anything you can think. The only bars and chains that can hold a human are the bars and chains they allow to hold their minds.

So, what do you do with that knowledge? The only thing that I can think to do , as a human being, is to tell everyone I can, talk to the people with whom I share the world. So, I tell everyone with whom I converse. I make YouTube videos to spread this knowledge... This is why I am here. But, I don't stop at YouTube. I know most of the people in my community. Though, not many are prepared to learn that their whole way of life is impractical, fundamentally violent, and nihilistic, I try to communicate whatever knowledge they can accept within their scope of reality. If something does not fall in-line with your view of the world, it is hard to accept that it has any truth. People will only believe things that fit their reality.

I don't have the answers, and I haven't met anyone that does, but there is a problem that is too large to solve unless we have the majority of people understanding that an undebatable problem exists. The system in which we live is unnatural. It doesn't work for people, it never has, and it never will. There will be a small ruling class, and a larger class of the ruled.

Right now, the problems people are noticing are symptoms of the larger problem that is eluding the vision of most of humanity. The problem is our worldview and the acceptance, participation, and perpetuation of that worldview in the education and indoctrination of our children. It's the worldview that tells us that the earth was made for man; that everything in the world is subject to human ownership, exploitation, and control; that tells us there is something wrong with us because we are human. This indoctrination of our minds teaching us that this culture is "the only way to live" is nothing less than nihilistic an tyrannical. If we think we are destined to destroy ourselves, we will.

Getting away from the civilization, in geographical terms, is not going to stop, or even slow, what is inevitably our future. We are consuming the future, now, so that there isn't a future for humanity or anything else. You and I can live in a way that opposes the worldview of our culture and maintains sustainability, but if there is any chance of a future for those after us, we must reach those who don't see the problems, or even know that there is a problem.

So, I am here, telling you. Now, you know there's something fundamentally wrong with the worldview of our culture. Go learn more, talk to people, read books, "be the change you wish to see in the world." Give your children a planet that is inhabitable. They won't care if we were democratic or totalitarian, or what wars were fought. They are going to care about how we left the world for them. Can they breathe the air, drink the water, eat the food? Can they live on the planet we left to them?

That is who I am, why I am here, and how I think I got here.

Global Industialization

Global Industialization

Sky and sea and land
are not the property of man
but man belongs to them
he cannot conquer himself
so he conquers everything else
creating the fallacy of wealth
giving rise to the empire of hell
making lies so easy to sell
that no one will even rebel
against the tyranny of title

Verse #1:

How many truths must you see
before you see the harm of industry?
we're living in the age of information
biological objectification, cultural indoctrination,
genocidal desensitization,
in a zealous but impractical perpetuation.

Verse #2:

How many truths must you see
before you see the harm of civilization?
We're living in the age of information
a suicidal extermination, with cataclysmal determination,
but we need a total discontinuation
of this global industrialization.

Capitalism is Slavery

"Even a woman is good and so is a slave, although it may be said that a woman is an inferior thing and a slave beneath consideration."


Capitalism is Slavery

I used to think that the key to freedom was private property and capitalism was the economic system that fell in-line with that idea. But, capitalism must maintain a class of owners and a class of the owned, or workers. The class of owners are not workers, they can use workers like a resource, and they do.

The foundation of "civilization" was, and is, slavery. It was present in the first civilizations and is even condoned and endorsed by the Bible, the most widely accepted religious text... The society in which we live is widely considered a "free society," and private property is the foundation of that "freedom."

In order for this system to be maintained there must be an owning, or ruling, class. And, conversely, there must be an owned, working, or slave class. Why would a slave owner want to own slaves when it is far cheaper and more economical for a slave owner to allow his slaves to believe they are "freemen" who must "make their own way" inside of his system?

The only thing that has substantially changed throughout history in the social structure is that now the slaves think they are free. Most cannot see the chains holding them in bondage, or feel the whip cracking on their back, so they experience an illusory state of "freedom." So much do they hold this idea, that they will fight to maintain the system that enslaves them.

Even the most aware and "awake" individuals seem to still be clinging intellectually to the system that enslaves them, not looking deeply enough to see that they are supporting that system with idealistic hubris.

In closing, capitalism is based on property and ownership, which invariably lead to slavery. Whether "voluntary" or involuntary, the capitalist system cannot exist without a class of rulers and a class of the ruled.

Stop clinging to what your culture tells you is the only way. The is no "one right way" for all people to live. And any idea that maintains that it's the only way is definitely going to be tyrannical to those upon whom it is imposed.

No Care (Original Song)

No Care

Verse 1

There's an ambiance manifest in the underside
you can run and try to hide
But it'll find you and control your mind
The story of the culture makes us blind
To the atrocities committed by our species
the things that we neglect to respect


You've been taught the world was made for man
Wars have been fought to maintain that stance
The destruction we've wrought takes away our chance
To survive, stay alive in balance

Verse 2

Use and consume and destroy all that we please
you know we do it with ease
Take the world and all things there
and use them with no care
Mine the resources till the world is bare
and do this all with no care
Drive to extinction and make rare
the life with whom existence we share

Chorus 2x

You've been taught the world was made for man
Wars have been fought to maintain that stance
The destruction we've wrought takes away our chance
To survive, stay alive in balance

by Damiel Quinn

(Read by Youtubers)


Comments and Reviews of Ishmael
"From now on I will divide the books I have read into two categories -- the ones I read before Ishmael and those read after."
-- Jim Britell, Whole Earth Review

"A thoughtful, fearlessly low-key novel about the role of our species in the planet... laid out for us with an originality and a clarity that few would deny."
-- The New York Times Book Review

"Wonderfully engaging... Think of Robert Pirsig in Zen & the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance, or B.F. Skinner in Walden Two..."
-- Los Angeles Times Book Review

"Quinn entraps us in the dialogue itself, in the sweet and terrible lucidity of Ishmael's analysis of the human condition... It was surely for this deep, clear persuasiveness of argument that Ishmael was awarded its prize."
-- The Washington Post

"... unusual, even eccentric enough to place Quinn on the cult literal map... both Socrates and King Kong might be pleased."
-- Kirkus Reviews

"...Suspenseful, inventive and socially urgent as any fiction or nonfiction book you are likely to read this or any other year."
-- The Austin Chronicle

"... fascinating... Quinn's smooth style and his intriguing proposals should hold the attention of readers interested in daunting dilemmas that beset our planet."
-- Publishers Weekly

How Obama Got Elected... Interviews With Obama Voters

(This film does not belong to me. The views of this filmmaker do not represent mine, but this is a very good representation of how Obama and others were viewed by his supporters as a result of the puppet media.)

" looks at how media coverage of the 2008 election impacted what Obama voters knew (or thought they knew) about the campaign."

"Promote then as an object of primary importance, Institutions for the general diffusion of knowledge. In proportion as the structure of a government gives force to public opinion, it is essential that public opinion should be enlightened."

George Washington, Farewell Address, September 19, 1796

Zogby Poll

512 Obama Voters 11/13/08-11/15/08 MOE +/- 4.4 points

97.1% High School Graduate or higher, 55% College Graduates

Results to 12 simple Multiple Choice Questions

57.4% could NOT correctly say which party controls congress (50/50 shot just by guessing)

71.8% could NOT correctly say Joe Biden quit a previous campaign because of plagiarism (25% chance by guessing)

82.6% could NOT correctly say that Barack Obama won his first election by getting opponents kicked off the ballot (25% chance by guessing)

88.4% could NOT correctly say that Obama said his policies would likely bankrupt the coal industry and make energy rates skyrocket (25% chance by guessing)

56.1% could NOT correctly say Obama started his political career at the home of two former members of the Weather Underground (25% chance by guessing).

And yet.....

Only 13.7% failed to identify Sarah Palin as the person on which their party spent $150,000 in clothes

Only 6.2% failed to identify Palin as the one with a pregnant teenage daughter

And 86.9 % thought that Palin said that she could see Russia from her "house," even though that was Tina Fey who said that!!

Only 2.4% got at least 11 correct.

Only .5% got all of them correct. (And we "gave" one answer that was technically not Palin, but actually Tina Fey)

Election Results 2008

The night of the election, I made a video describing how I felt about the results of the 2008 election.

It's very obvious to anyone who really looks into the facts, that Obama and McCain had similar ties monetarily, politically, socially, as well as other ways that I am neglecting to mention.

Anyone who cares should be looking into the affiliations of these two. The winners of the 2008 election are not the people, and anyone who thinks so is really lying to themselves.

I believe Obama was chosen before the election cycle got started. The campaign was to "sell" him to the people. And, WOW, the people bought him.

click here to watch this video on youtube

I am flabbergasted by the inability of the people to see beyond the charade. What will it take for people to see that both sides are really just an extension of the "Banker/Multinational Corporation" control machine? The left/right paradigm is a control mechanism. And, it seems to be working.

Stop buying into the facade, it is just an illusion of choice.

The Myth of the Self

(poetry and song)

The myth of self controls us all
We think we're separate, we think we're flawed
Drop the self and you can see
Everything else allows us to be
We're the same as the grass and trees
The worms and the ants and bees
The particles we have in our bodies
are not the same ones we had as babies

The universe experiences itself through us
We don't all see it yet, but we must
We're just a compilation of the world outside
It's time to open up your eyes and your mind

We gotta move past this materialist
view of the world and all the things that exist
It's gonna hold us back, we're going to stay its slave
It'll control our thoughts and the way we behave

It's our culture that dictates reality
It tells us greed is a part of humanity
As long as we believe this we'll never be free
We'll just continue on this path of total insanity

Because The myth of the self controls us all
and we think we're separate, and we think we're flawed
Drop the self and you can see
Everything else allows us to be
We're the same as the grass and trees
The worms and the ants and bees
The particles we have in our bodies
are not the ones we had as babies

We're new

We are the universe, experiencing itself

open your eyes...

Prediction: Obama will be Bush on Steroids!

Obama's Civilian Service Agenda

Rahm Emanuel

Zbigniew Brzezinski

Gary Hart

There is a start, but there is so much to this. You need to go look for yourself to see with what these people are involved.
